Sheldon and Mark took us on an amazing ride on the beach and then into the ocean to swim with the horses. They were the best guides you could ever ask for. Very knowledgeable and funny. Always with a smile on their face. You can tell they love what they do and are great at it. Thank you for taking... More

This is a very well run equestrian yard. The experience of the turf and surf can be enjoyed by all. I would certainly recommend this stables as the one to choose, The horses are well looked after and the staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you Trina for giving me the chance to experience this.

This is my third time here and I have experienced the beach excursion, the swim with the horses, dressage lessons with amazing Julia and today I finally could take a class with Trina, the owner. I have been a rider since a little kid, stopped for 15 years and took it back 10 months ago; I can tell you this:... More

Half Moon is a nice facility and the horses are clearly well cared for, safety is taken seriously, with mandatory helmets and good instruction. The Sand Stroll was nice, but I felt it was a bit too short. If you are interested in taking a horse into the water, book Turf and Surf, and do it early!!

As a lover of swimming, the sea, and horses, the turf and surf is perfection! You don't need to be a swimmer or a rider though, but the majesty and strength of these animals as they tow you along in the sea is undeniable. I was well looked after by my guide and the horses are in great condition. Highly... More

I had booked to go horse back riding in the sea but it was cancelled due to the windy weather and rough sea. Instead I was given an opportunity to ride around the stables free of... More

Swimming with the horses was so much fun. Even my 17-year-old said it was one of the coolest things she's done. Loved our guide, Sheldon.
